Andy was born and raised in the small college town of Oxford, Ohio. Having been given a solid foundation in the faith by his believing parents, Andy put his trust in Christ as a young boy. Beginning in middle school, God began putting older mentors, like Eric Russ, into his life, who helped disciple him in the faith, which eventually gave him a passion for intentional discipleship. After graduating from the University of Kentucky, where he competed as a track and field athlete, Andy joined the full-time staff of Athletes in Action. He currently serves on the campus of Virginia Tech where he enjoys training student-athletes to walk with God.
